Main Card (7 PM ET, ESPN+)
Islam Makhachev vs. Bobby Green
Round 1 – Makhachev feints a head kick right away. Slapping low kick and a front kick. Makhachev wings and looks for a front headlock, without success. Green tries to jab the body. Body kick from Green and Makhachev uses the opportunity to grapple. They battle on the fence. Green initially repels him but looks for a guillotine and gets put on his back. Makhachev all over him. He settles into a deep half. Makhachev threatens a kimura briefly to take mount. Green gives up the back, then rollls back over. He’s just turtled, eating shots. It’s over. Easy as pie. Makhachev is sick.
